View Full Version : What is wrong with my crab?

02-21-2009, 05:23 PM
I recently noticed one of my crabs' eyes looked funny. It's light red, and where his little pupil should be is grayish/white. His other eye is normal and dark. One of my crabs recently molted, but I don't know if it was the one with the strange eye.

Do you think this could be from improper molting? or a fight? Has anyone ever had this happen to one of their crabs before? :help:

honestly my camera sucks, i can't get any shots of anything that small. :(

Probably hurt his eye in a fight.

Fighting is my only guess but impossible to definitively diagnose without a picture. Watch the water parameters very closely and monitor the situation.
